Early and Middle Ordovician conodonts are described and illustrated from the Thong Pha Phum and Kanchanaburi areas in western Thailand and the Li area in northern Thailand. The Thong Pha Phum fauna consists of 14 species representing ten genera and one unidentified species, and from the Kanchanaburi and Li sections two and five species, respectively, have been recovered. Two conodont zones, the Triangulodus larapintinensis and Aurilobodus leptosomatus zones, are established in the Thong Pha Phum section. The fauna from the T. larapintinensis Zone includes Panderodus nogamii, Triangulodus larapintinensis, and species of Juanognathus, and the A. leptosomatus Zone is characterized by A. leptosomatus, Histiodella holodentata, and Plectodina onychodonta. Two regression events are recorded in a lower part of the Thong Pha Phum section. The conodont biostratigraphy indicates that the regressions took place in latest Early Ordovician and earliest Middle Ordovician.
